two planes colliding at jfk last april. but we did find 13 runway incidents. 13 runway incursions in san francisco in 2011 alone. about the same at pittsburgh, seattle combined. >> any time you encroach on the runway that another plane is taking off on landing on it creates a potential danger. how far from the line did you cross? did you cross an inch or a several feet. >> reporter: there was quote average time and distance to avoid a collision. but the feds have flagged a few areas at san francisco international that are hot spots. including a taxi area that are confusing to pilots. raising the risk of accident. nationwide the number of runway incursions dropped to about
1,000. but a former agency insider says that's still far too many. >> the reason we're so concerned about runway incursions is we're intending to put more planes in the system. with more planes in the system and runway incursions on theincrease we are headed for a serious deadly event. >> reporter: in a statement, the faa says it's improving training and signage at airports nationwide to further reduce the number of runway incursions all across the country. scott macfarlane. >> mike mccarron sent us this statement. to further enhance the safety profile at san francisco international airport, the airport -- previously undisclosed court documents show that american airlines may beat its
own record for safety violation penalties. a bankruptcy filing shows the airport may get fined 135 million for safety violations. in 2010 american was fined $24 million for maintenance problems with its md80s. the federal aviation administration is banning the use of a procedure that led to a close call at an airport near the nation's capital. the traffic reversing procedure involves air controllers directing some planes to take off and land opposite of the usual direction. last week bad weather prompted the use of the procedure near ronald reagan national airport in washington where three jets got too close to one another. the faa says it appears a miscommunication between air traffic controllers caused the mishap. new procedures are scheduled to be in place within a week. nasa rover has sent back
